One Life to Live Alum Is Outed 'Gossip 'Boy'


Talk that one of the Gossip Girl studs would come out of the closet during one of the show's last five post-Strike episodes of the season had the television industry majorly speculating who it was. Readers of the books more than likely assumed it would be Dan (Penn Badgley), since his character comes out as a bisexual in the book series that the teen soap is based on, but it turns out that the character in question is Eric van der Woodsen played by Connor Paolo, the younger brother of "it" girl Serena (Blake Lively). One Life to Live viewers might remember Paolo as Starr Manning's first boyfriend Travis. Spoilers have Eric being caught making out with the new boyfriend of Dan's little sister Jenny on May 3. I wonder how Serena and Eric's controlling mother Lily (Kelly Rutherford, ex-Sam, Generations) will feel about that?
